National Voice of the Poor Committee recommendations
As Vincentians we must not only be concerned with alleviating need but also with identifying those structures, societal and legislative, that cause and perpetuate poverty.
Listed below are National Voice of the Poor Committee recommendations on various issues. Demographics will alter the importance of certain issues over others but nonetheless at the core is a need for us to speak out and highlight areas of concern for our clients as we see them.
- Affordable Housing for the Poor
- Fair Wages
- Health Care for the Poor
- Human Trafficking
- Predatory Loans
